22/04/2021 | 10:19:54 Thank you, Mr President. Yesterday President Putin made his State of the Union, which was watched by millions of Russians and the President addressed many important issues, like the pandemic, the international tensions and the social and economic situation in Russia. There's one issue he did not mention in the State of the Union and that was the issue that was mentioned by thousands only a few hours later in the streets of Moscow and St Petersburg and Irkutsk and in Novossibirsk.

The Committee for Political Affairs and Democracy was asked to prepare, in time, a report on the Assembly's vision on the strategic priorities for the Council of Europe. The Committee granted me the honour of preparing... 28/01/2021 | 09:18:33 Thank you, Mister President. I think we should not call this Assembly a "puppet dog". It is a meeting of the national parliaments of 47 Member States. I think we should pay respect to the essence of the Assembly. Mister President, our rules allow members to challenge credentials of a national delegation at the beginning of each year, but having this right does not say that you always have to use it.
